Love Hate Love

Love Hate Love weaves together the stories of three families whose lives were torn apart by some of the most notorious terrorist attacks of the 21st century, yet refused to succumb to despair or hate. Liz Alderman’s son was murdered in the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. Esther Hyman’s only sister was killed in the 2005 bus bombings in London. Australian Ben Tullipan lost both legs when a car bomb exploded outside a Bali nightclub in 2002. The film follows these individuals and their families across five continents, as they struggle to overcome their deep anguish and build positive, world-changing legacies for their lost loved ones.
In June, the First Tuesday Film Festival will be taking on the gun violence debate. We'll be screening Gunned Down as well as a couple of additional short videos. Followed by, we suspect, some seriously intense discussion.

In Gunned Down: The Power of the NRA, FRONTLINE goes inside the politics of America's gun debate and investigates how the NRA uses its unrivaled political power to stop gun regulation in America. Veteran filmmaker Michael Kirk investigates how it has consistently succeeded in defeating new gun control legislation. With first-hand accounts of school killings in Newtown and Columbine, and the shooting of Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, Gunned Down examines why despite the national trauma over gun violence Washington hasn't acted. - See more at:
